Love Visits Unity House

Unity House’s Domestic Violence Services program received a special visitor on December 24th, bearing gifts for families in the program.

Eight year old Sa’Fyre Terry has captured the hearts of many with her story of survival and resilience after suffering severe burns in a 2013 fire. A Christmas wish for holiday cards has snowballed into her receiving cards, gifts and well wishes from all over, even a card from Michelle Obama and internationally.

But it was something closer to home that brought Sa’Fryre and her family to Unity House’s Domestic Violence Services program on Christmas Eve: a desire to share with others and bring gifts to families for the holidays. Sa’Fyre and her helpers brought in boxes and boxes of toys, games, books and more for children at Christmas. The gifts will be available to families in the Domestic Violence Services program as part of Unity House’s annual Adopt a Child program.

The gifts are very much appreciated, but even better was the message that Sa’Fyre seems to personify- that hope springs eternal, that you can always find something to smile about and that it is in giving that we receive.

Unity House thanks Sa’Fyre and her family for visiting Unity House and making this very special delivery.
